We preferred the Viking river cruises but decided to try this one because it included Dobovnic, my husband's roots. It felt like we were on the river boat and included all the amenities we have come to expect. The ship was beautiful and never felt crowded like other cruise companies. The service was perfect and the young lady who cared for us and our stateroom treated us like family, paying special attention to my elderly husbands wants and needs. Shore excursions were educational and interesting as we had never been to that part of the world. The meals were exquisite and special including a surprise celebration from the staff to celebrate our 39th wedding anniversary. The stateroom was comfortable and spacious and well appointed with very comfortable furniture. We really enjoyed the spa with its massages and saunas. The disembarkation went very smoothly, not the usual cattle call and luggage hunt that occurs on other ocean going boats. We can't wait for our next Viking experience.
Our cabin was kept spotless and our fridge well stocked. Always had a full ice bucket. Lots of room and storage. Very comfortable beds and couches. Nice private balcony.
